About this event

Elizabeth Frood is a New Zealand-born Egyptologist and academic, who specialises in self-presentation and the study of non-royals. Since 2006, she has been an associate professor of Egyptology at the University of Oxford. She's also been director of its Griffith Institute and is a Fellow of St Cross College, Oxford.

“Extraordinary bodies: what do Egyptian statues do?

In this lecture I discuss the composition of temple statues, and the questions they raise in terms of personhood, performance, and material presence. I take a case study approach, examining in particular a small group of late 18th and early 19th Dynasty statues which seemingly defy convention, presenting their owners as shabtis, including one that shows its high-ranking owner as a miller. Why these forms in temples?"

The Zoom link will be emailed out the day before and just before the lecture. Please keep an eye on your Junk folders incase it is diverted as such.
